Migration of fluids from one geochemical reservoir to another may bring about disequilibria and drive reactions that ultimately control the mineralogical and chemical composition of the Earth’s crust and surface. Understanding water-rock interaction is mandatory in solving a wide variety of academic and societal problems such as assessing environmental hazards, optimizing oil recovery, identifying and exploiting mineral and ore deposits, and reconstructing past environments and climate.

This volume collects contributions from different disciplines within the earth sciences and presents reviews on a wide spectrum of topics that are relevant in understanding water rock systems. It gives a comprehensive account of...
